Beans are an easy plant to grow and they also grow quickly for science projects. All you have to do is take half of a plastic soda bottle and fill it with earth. Put the bean in a moist paper towel and in the earth on the side of the bottle. This way the bean will not only grow quickly but you will also be able to see all of its progress.

Bean sprouts grow fast, too.

Sunflowers are among the fastest growing plants which makes them ideal for endeavors such as science projects. They require a good deal of sun and water but are very interesting case studies. They have 1,000 to 2,000 petals per flower and their "heads" move in the direction of the sun.
